The Farros' post gives short shift to Josh's romantic relationship with Williams, which apparently accelerated the brothers' departure from the band, and discusses the growing musical and religious differences between Williams and the rest of the band: "Hayley presented lyrics to us that were really negative and we didn't agree with.
‘It was the worst day of my life,’ says Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams of the day, almost three years ago, her ex-bandmate and ex-boyfriend, Josh Farro, wrote a blog denouncing his old group as a ‘manufactured product of a major label’ in which the members were treated ‘as less important than Hayley’.
It took a lot of restraint and a lot of faith.’ To add to the strain, the split came after achieving their greatest success – their third album, 2009’s Brand New Eyes, reached No.1 in Britain.
What followed was some soul-searching between Williams, 24, and the remaining members, guitarist Taylor York and bass player Jeremy Davis, over what to do next.
They didn't like the idea of Hayley being in a rock band so they forced her to leave wanting her to pursue a solo career.
"I did not think Hayley's version told the whole story, at least from our perspective and hopefully this will explain a bit about why we are leaving," the post reads.‘There were days I’d wake up and think, “this is pointless”,’ she says.‘There were times I thought I’d have to get another job.Farro and his brother left Paramore in 2010 and posted a tell-all blog about his exit, claiming the band were a “manufactured product of a major label” where the members were treated as “less important” than lead singer Hayley Williams.She subsequently declared Farro’s exit as the worst day of her life.Farro, the guitarist, and his brother Zac, the drummer, had recently left the group.Williams issued a statement wishing them success before Farro posted his thoughts.I’d written all the songs with Josh, I’d hardly written with anyone else, it was definitely scary.’ Hours of drinking tea in York’s kitchen ensued.Former Paramore member Josh Farro has confirmed that he is back on speaking terms with his former bandmates but has ruled out ever rejoining the group. Our research has confirmed that the blog post is legitimate and was written by Josh Farro. In a blog reportedly written by ex-Paramore guitarist Josh Farro, he reveals the motives behind the departure of he and his brother, drummer Zac Farro. Paramore is continuing on and maybe someday the Farro's will have more music too.everyone is happier this way and that's the bottom line." UPDATE: a.m.
